Full time: Tottenham 4-1 Sunderland


From that corner Tottenham swarm forward on the counter again and its four on one with John O'Shea the only man back. Like in the first half, they make a meal out of the move, with Alli losing a shoulder-to-shoulder challenge with van Aanholt who can clear.


Watmore has done his best to keep his side going after coming off the bench. Just inside the box he jinks past Alderweireld and tees one up for Billy Jones whose low drive deflects wide for a corner.


Two minutes of normal time left at White Hart Lane. Tottenham have made their final change with Kane coming off to a standing ovation to be replaced by Son Heung-Min.


Tottenham are coming forward at will now, Sunderland look like they are playing with 10 men. It's been an utter capitulation from them since Kirchhoff came on, he's looked completely off the pace.


Jan Kirchhoff is enduring probably the worst debut in the history of the Premier League. His latest offence sees him clatter into the back of Rose and the referee has no hesitation in pointing to the spot. Kane steps up and confidently sweeps the resulting penalty into the bottom right corner.

PENALTY - Tottenham


A change for both sides here as Josh Onomah comes onto replace Lamela while Duncan Watmore is on for Lens.


You do feel a bit for 21-year-old Jordan Pickford. On his full Premier League debut he has made some fine saves but has been let down by the defence in front of him.


Jan Kirchhoff by the way came onto replace Danny Graham as Allardyce went with three at the back to hold onto the draw. It's backfired a tad.


Tottenham may have just sealed this. Sam Allardyce's decision to bring on Jan Kirchhoff isn't looking to clever at the moment; 55 seconds after he came on Tottenham scored their second. Now he is at fault for the third. Eriksen bears down on goal completely unchallenged with Kirchhoff standing off him. The Dane eventually takes a shot that takes a wicked deflected off the German, lifting it over Pickford and into the back of the net.

Tottenham have the lead for the first time in this game! Danny Rose's effort is well blocked by Pickford but Dembele picks up the rebound. From just inside the area, he easily cuts inside past his marker and drives a low effort into the bottom corner. A fine finish, but that was awful defending from the away side.

Now Spurs come close to a second as Erik Lamela's chipped cross is met by Alli, but he directs his header just wide of the far post. Sunderland meanwhile have made a change with Jack Rodwell coming on for the booked Cattermole.


Tottenham try a short corner but make a right mess of it and Sunderland spring forward, with Defoe and Johnson the furthest men forward! The former Spurs striker receives the ball inside the penalty area but can only fire into the side netting. What a chance for the away side.


Danny Graham is penalised for a foul on Trippier out on the right. Free kick for Spurs.


Defoe threatens to breach the Spurs backline but his stopped in his tracks by a terrific sliding challenge from Alderweireld. The former Spurs striker was all alone as he drove forward.


Eriksen clips in a delicious cross from the right that Kane tries to meet with a run across the box but O'Shea gets their just ahead of him to clear for a corner, which Wes Brown nuts clear.


A minute into the second half and Lee Cattermole has picked up the first yellow card of the game.


And we are back underway at White Hart Lane.


HALF TIME: Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Sunderland


It's a manic end to this first half. Eriksen receives the ball on the edge of the box and curls a wicked effort on goal but Pickford produces another fine save to push it away.
